Hi Terry I have only just found your message and noticed other messages with Joann. I have a first cousin who I think is still in Forbes. Her mother was Gladys Rath (my father's sister), but the unfortunately the family lost touch quite a long time ago. I would love to pick up on the research again, as I have not done anything for some time.
It seems that not much has been found beyond PAtrick, and I am keen to try to find more. I am not sure where to start (re comparing notes). I have PAtrick's details, his wife and children and when he arrived in Australia etc. and would be happy to pass this on to anyone who needs it.
If you have details going back to his parents (or beyond) that would be great.
Also, cousins of mine here in Sydney heard of a reunion in Forbes, but did not know when or where.Were you involved in this and was there any particualr info as a result of this?
